Christer. Hope your ok. My thoughts are with you. I imagine your feeling disappointed and upset.

I wish I could write something constructive but I don't have any answers. I just hope you can pick yourself up and try again.

Take care...stephen

Hi Christer, just wanted to wish you well and I know how hard it is, take some time and you'll come back stronger.

Hello Christer hope your weekend runs smoothly. 

The addiction will try to use our past relapses as ammunition against us. Having repeatedly fell into the traps, our gullibility must make us very vulnerable.

Take care my friend...stephen

Good job on 14 days gambling free, Christer! Things get easier to organise once you stop gambling. Only gambling makes your mind lose control and lose common sense.

Sorry to hear it, addiction (whether alcohol, food, gambling, codependency) is a whole family issue. You can’t control what your daughter eats, just as she can’t control what you gamble. But you can change the family dynamics by changing you.

Hello Christer. Hope you and your family are ok and your daughter is getting the help she needs. 

Congratulations on staying gamble free for 51 days. You have shown a lot of courage.

When we experience sadness in our lives the addiction might come along masquerading as a friend. We know it's a delusion but sometimes we struggle to see things clearly and get confused. Gambling just leads us down a miserable path to purgatory and we don't want to go there again...stephen

Sorry to read of your setback Christer but you did 2 months gamble free and you can do it again.

Hope you are ok  in yourself and your daughter's condition is improving.

Take care my friend. Don't dwell on your past relapse but look forward to a better tomorrow...stephen

Hi Christer. Good to see you posting on the Guru Challenge and glad to see you 13 days away from your last gamble. That was just an isolated bet after 2 months gamble free. Congratulations on recognising that it was a mistake which you regretted.

You are having to cope with upset and sadness in your life. When we are feeling a bit down the addiction might try to get us back gambling but it only makes us feel even worse.

What's done is done and can't be changed. What we can do is live today as best we can and hope for a better tomorrow. Wishing you well...stephen
